Well if anyone has been following my thread on the progress of the hacking, you should know by now that some people have hacked it. Well now (it only took about four hours) we have a GUI Jailbreak. http://www.quickpwn.com/ - Enjoy!

I haven't used this method myself, but it does work very well!!!

Rock on baby.

Wow 4 hours?

Why can't these great programmers put their talents to something more useful than hacking a phone :confused:

Yeah, really. But there has to be a rebel for everything! They relied on an already set method though, they just improved upon it to work better.

They did an awesome job, to think we now have a GUI Jailbreak only a few days after the new OS. I dunno how long it's going to take to get into the newer Touch though.

Looks like it's only for the Touch at the moment. Got my hopes up. :-/

Edit: Yes, I should have noticed that this is the Touch forums. :p

if you need to locate the file on your computer and got the file legitimatly, then serch for "ipod update" or something along those lines. you will know the folder when you see it.


on another note... you have to jailbreak the firmware BEFORE you upgrade? if so, does this mean that I have to downgrade again before instaling the jailbroken version of the firmware?

I'm also having trouble finding the firmware bundle you are supposed to browse for. Searched the Apple Software Update folder, iPod folder, and iTunes folder in "Program Files" but can't find it. Sorry, kind of newb.

thats cus they hid it. and did a bad job of hiding it to. it's not in the itunes program folder. go to start->search for files and folders-> serch for itunes. you should find many more itunes folders then appered in programs. once you find the proper folder, place the firmware you downloaded into it. itunes should have no problems now.

Anyone know why my connection to Cydia and Installer always times out? Can't figure it out. Did the GUI Quickpwn, and have the icons, but when I go to open either one, it doesn't seem to be making a connection. I have a good wifi connection, as mail, safari, weather apps all work and connect.
